ALPHABET Series: Z DISHCLOTH
After months of work, today marks the end of another project: my Alphabet Series. Now even Diego de la Vega can have his monogrammed blanket (you know who he is, don’t you?).
Below you can find the pattern for Z letter and the option to buy a PDF file containing all the patterns of this series for $10. If you can do it, I’ll appreciate your help to finance my next projects. But if you can’t, please don’t worry! Just make sure to tell people where did you get the patterns if they ask. That’s a great help for me too 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this project, and I’ll see you on the next one!
Hugs to you,
PS: you won’t have to wait too much, I’ll be posting the next pattern of my 52 Square Pickup tomorrow! 😛

If you want to support my work, you can buy the PDF file containing all patterns of my Alphabet Series HERE. All for $10! I believe it could be a great resource for your future projects. 😀 I’ll be adding the file to my Etsy Shop and Ravelry Store at $12, once I finish my blanket and take some pictures.
If you can’t buy them, please don’t worry! Just make sure to tell people where did you get the patterns if they ask, so they can also visit Oh La Lana!’s blog. That’s a great help for me too 🙂
